You mean aside from the obvious choice - i.e., "Let the bright seraphim" from Handel's SAMSON?

Note that the baroque suggestions would all sound even better if you could also enlist a harpsichord (or at least a lute or baroque guitar) to flesh out the continuo parts.

J.S. Bach's Cantata BWV 51, "Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen", is a solo cantata for soprano, obbligato trumpet, 2 violins, viola, and continuo. Traditionally, the continuo instrument would be the organ - but there is no reason why the unrealised
continuo can't be played, instead, by the cello in your string quartet. There's a free version of the full score online that you can look at -,_BWV_...nn_Sebastian); Breitkopf & Haertel probably publish the string and continuo parts. -

Alessandro Scarlatti's solo cantata for soprano, "Su le sponde del Tebro", is scored for soprano, 2 violins, trumpet, and continuo. Again, if your violist and cellist are skillful enough they should be able to "realise" the continuo
part. -

Baldassare Galuppi's "Alla tromba della Fama" is scored for soprano, strings, trumpet, and continuo. -

Antonio Vivaldi's "Combatta un gentil cor" - aria from the opera TITO MANLIO, RV 778 -

Other baroque works (solo cantatas, concert arias, solo motets) for soprano, strings, trumpet, and continuo:

Jan Dismas Zelenka: Psalm 112 in F major "Laudate pueri Dominum", ZWV 82 -

(this is the ZWV 81 version for tenor)

Alessandro Scarlatti: Il Giardino di amore

Alessandro Melani: Quai bellici accenti; Qual mormorio giocondo

Johann Rosenmuller: Ad pugnas, ad bella; O felicissimus paradysi aspectus


Alan Hovhaness: Avak the Healer - solo cantata for soprano, trumpet, and strings, Op. 65

Harald Genzmer: "The Mystic Trumpeter" (1978) - cantata for soprano, trumpet, and strings

Carola Baukholt: "Blinder Fleck" (2005) - for mezzo-soprano, trumpet, and strings

Caspar Johannes Walter: "Angst und Ahnung" (2002) - for mezzo-soprano, trumpet, and strings -

Dexter Morill: "Just a Shape to Fill a Lack" (1981) - for soprano, trumpet, timpani, and strings

These should give you some ideas to investigate.
